After reading the Feb. 19 commentaries in the Daily Pilot titled "Obama wages war against Catholic Church" and "Readers should give Muslim column a chance," I am bewildered by the current lack of factual honesty in our public discourse.
The first piece claims President Obama is waging a war against the Catholic Church in his recent attempt to require church-based health-care providers and employers to not force their religious, non-contraceptive policy on all their members and employees but allow them access to contraception benefits as each person sees fit. The Republican right wing is using this subterfuge to advance their overall agenda to defeat Obama in the next election.
What happened to all the Republican wackos shouting that Obama is a Muslim? I guess that pound of slinging mud doesn't suit this topic. The writer goes on to call Obama a "tyrant" who wants to crush the Catholic Church.
